On Windows, the binaries are statically linked, which is why we ship the necessary openssl runtime .dll's inside the egg, which allows the extension to find it without the binaries having to be on the system PATH. On OS X, they are also dynamically linked against the system ssl libraries, which I know for a fact are binary compatible between OS X 10.4 and 10.5(intel and ppc), because I had to test my pyOpenSSL egg on all of these platform combinations.
